To complete New Testament Survey 2 I needed to read through the New Testament as one of the assignments to pass. I’ve read through the New Testament who knows how many times, I never how been bored of it and it’s amazing that each time I always have something that pops out to me. Now I’m only listing one verse in this blog, but really there’s probably over a billion things I could write.
In the book of Jude, Jude concludes the passage by saying “Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy…” That verse just get’s me excited that Jesus with joy, exceeding joy will present me faultless. We all know that we will stand before God to give account of the works in our body. But, Praise the Lord, Jesus Christ will present those that believe on God’s Son and the work which he did on the cross to provide a way of salvation will presented as faultless. I can’t imagine the number of times I’ve been found at fault against God, however with joy Jesus Christ will present me faultless.
The plan of salvation is miraculous…. now the action we need to take on this verse is to make sure that we are in Christ…. He desires us to not be trapped in the wicked lifestyle of the world, but to be like him. He is able to keep us from falling, and if we look in the scriptures we can see what we need to do in order to keep from falling. Don’t use the excuse that Christ will present you faultless and you can live anyway you wish, Paul wrote clearly that we are not to live like that.
Live for Him because you Love Him!
